Dig Dug 2: Trouble in Paradise 346/365

Dig Dug 2 didn’t make it home until the 15th of December in 1989 but we’re celebrating early.
December is a weird month with a bunch of titles and I unfortunately have to give you this one early. But the reason I picked it and not the one you’ll see in a few days is because Dig Dug is awesome and deserves respect and an early release.

“It is Dig Dug’s job to protect 72 different tropical islands from his arch rivals, Pooka and the fire breathing Fygar. Played from an overhead point of view, Dig Dug now has two weapons at his disposal; the first is an air pump and the second is a drill. The pump can be used to inflate and destroy the enemies the same as in the original Dig Dug. At various locations on the islands are stakes, and when the drill is used near a stake a crack will form. If enough cracks become connected that section of the island will fall into the ocean, hopefully taking an enemy (and not Dig Dug!) with it. When all of the Pookas and Fygars have been destroyed, the game moves on to the next, more difficult level.”
